Thanks

Hello Dave
you can always fit a pressure regulator or buy a pump that runs at those pressures there not expensive

Hi Dave,
Webers DCOE carbs like to run between 2.5 and 4.5psi. If your pump puts out 7psi, I would definitely fit a pressure regulator in the fuel line to reduce the risk of flooding.
